16,000 L.A. guns to be crushed today, turned into steel rebar
8:35 AM | July 28, 2009
Officials today will destroy 16,000 guns confiscated from criminals and collected from numerous gun buy-back programs across L.A. County.

Law enforcement agencies have attempted to get guns off the street by allowing people to turn them in for gift cards.

Back in March, an LAPD gun-buyback program that traded gift cards for firearms netted nearly 1,700 weapons, including 40 assault-style weapons and a rifle with a grenade launcher.

The grenade launcher AR-15 rifle, which did not have a grenade in it, was delivered to the Los Angeles Police Department's Topanga station over the weekend as officers across the city distributed gift cards in exchange for handguns, rifles and shotguns. The anonymous drop-off program netted AR-15s, Uzis and AK-47s.
Sheriff Lee Baca will be on hand in Rancho Cucamonga to watch the guns being crushed. They will be recycled into steel rebar.

Officials today will destroy 16,000 guns confiscated from criminals and collected from numerous gun buy-back programs across L.A. County. "Love copy un paste"
they say "confiscated from criminals" I say, Maybe, but, YA here comes the "BUT" part.
How many of thoes criminals have better guns now??
and, When you and I, give up a gun (trade/sell) we trade up!
I think the Street asshole will do the same!
Now, about the regular person, that gave up their gun for a loaf of bread? (turned them in for gift cards). : )
When the BOOT kicks down their door @ 0300hours,________________________________,
THEY "R" SCREWED!! Do you agree?
When the Natizis, had the towns folks starved, they gave away a loaf of bread to each person, to get on the trains. They had also, gaven up their guns.
I get so upset, I have 16 Grand Kids, that are coming up. Oldst is 24, youngest is 3.
